When the doctor performs a root canal through a porcelain crown(already previously fabricated/placed), what does he code “building back up” the tooth as since it’s not for restoration retention? Or is it included int he RCT code. Thanks.
The most appropriate code would be D2999 (unspecified restorative procedure) make sure to add a short narraitive to support your code.
